Utrecht is the lively, beating heart of Holland. It was built around the Dom tower, which you can see from any point in the city, so there is no way you can get lost in the attractive, car-free city centre. Utrecht boasts beautiful canals with extraordinary wharf cellars housing cafés and terraces by the water. As well as the Dom tower, Utrecht boasts hundreds of other monuments that each contribute to the special atmosphere in this centuries-old university town.

Utrecht details

Utrecht has some superb shopping to offer. A broad variety of shops and boutiques lines the canals and streets in the inner city. The city centre is small enough to explore on foot but big enough to entertain you for days with art and culture. The Rietveld Schröder Huis, Dick Bruna Huis, Catharijneconvent, Centraal Museum and Museum Speelklok are just a few of the many extraordinary places to visit. If you want to immerse yourself in nature, go for a walk in the Wilhelminapark, Lepelenburg park and botanical gardens. Or simply go for a stroll along the canals embracing the city centre.
